Overview

Experience history in a vivid, interactive and playful way at the DDR Museum and enjoy a hands-on experience of the everyday life of a socialist state long gone.

Exhibits are there to be handled and only a few are kept in glass cabinets. Everything waits to be touched and experienced: open the drawers and closets, rummage through them and discover!

The smell of the Trabi is still originally GDR-like: take a seat, turn the ignition key, eyes front, foot on the gas pedal and set off. Typical engine noises of the Trabi and a simulated ride through the concrete-slab housing estate give an impression of what it was like to go for a ride in such an original.

Hailed as one of the most interactive museums in Europe, the DDR Museum offers you the opportunity to experience the GDR everyday life yourself.

Itinerary

You have two options for your visit to the DDR Museum: you may explore on your own or pre-book a one hour private guided tour.

Experience one of Europe’s most interactive exhibitions: Descend into a world of concrete-slab buildings, take a look behind cupboards and dampers, into drawers.

Rev the Trabi´s engine, flick from one TV channel to the next and choose between East and West German programs.

There is much more to discover in the DDR Museum: watch TV in the authentic GDR living room, rummage through the drawers of the Karat wall unit. The spice rack in the kitchen still smells of back then and the pressure cooker can be seen still standing on the stove.

There are documentaries for you to watch in original GDR movie chairs and it is possible to replay the football game “GDR vs. FRG” by oneself or to dance the Lipsi.
